Beyonce looked beautiful and Jay Z was dapper, but at the MET Gala last week something unusual happened in an elevator at the event. TMZ obtained a video from the a provate elevator showing Beyonce’s sister, Solange in an argument with brother-in-law Jay Z whens she tries to strike him a few times before their bodyguard tires to restrain her. Beyonce looked like she was trying to stay out of it! Wow, I wonder what the argument was over…you never know what’s going on behind closed doors right?
Jay Z was ferociously assaulted by Beyonce’s sister Solange … who was wildly kicking and swinging at him inside an elevator … and the attack was captured on surveillance video … obtained by TMZ.
According to our sources, it all went down at a Met Gala after party last week at the Standard Hotel in NYC. In the video … Jay Z, Beyonce and Solange step into the elevator … and then Solange goes crazy, screaming at Jay before unleashing a violent attack.
A large man — who appears to be a bodyguard — attempts to hold Solange back, but she manages to connect at least 3 times. At one point Solange throws a kick and Jay grabs her foot, but never attempts to strike her. Beyonce stands by without getting physically involved.
It’s unclear what triggered the fight.
And this is interesting. When you look closely, you see the bodyguard hit the emergency stop switch on the 12th floor — mid fight — presumably to keep the fight private.
All three walked out of the building together — Solange looks pissed — but while Bey and Solange get in one car … security walks Jay to a different one.
The Standard Hotel released a statement. “We are shocked and disappointed that there was a clear breach of our security system and the confidentiality that we count on providing our guest. We are investigating with the utmost urgency the circumstances surrounding the situation and, as is our customary practice, will discipline and prosecute the individuals involved to our fullest capacity.”
